Ok, this is a repost over from the WBB routine forum since I wasn't getting any views, much less any responses. I figured you guys could give me the advice I need.
Yesterday was my first leg day of my routine since I started WBB #1. My legs felt totally blasted after the workout, but I only had one problem: Hack squats. I'm positive I wasn't doing these correctly, everytime I would come up, the barbell would scrape against the back of my legs and I generally looked like an idiot. Was I trying to do too much weight or was my stance just crap?
I really didn't enjoy the motion at all, and I was wondering if I could replace Hacks with BB step-ups instead? Thanks in advance.

Maybe you just generally look like an idiot. I have the same problem.
A hack squat will scrape the backs of your legs. Yes, you could replace them if you don't like them.
Squats work better than supplements.
"You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

Thanks, Paul. Hacks out the window!
